We had a very successful launch on the 8th of March, with
a steady flow of new clients signing up to the scheme.
numbers are increasing weekly along with the journeys undertaken.
We now have clients in Bere Regis, Tolpuddle, Briantspuddle
and Winterborne Kingston and would very much like some volunteer
drivers from these villages.
NeighbourCar sheme has been set up by the Parish Council to
enable those with mobility problems or difficulty in accessing
transport to get to, for instance, medical or dental appointments
or to go shopping, or, for younger people perhaps to get to
a job interview.
Some of the questions that are being asked are:
Will it cost £10 for a couple to sign up to the scheme?
one registration per household.
Q: Do I have to pay for four journeys, if the driver
takes me and does not wait?
we are not charging for a service but asking for a voluntary
contribution, although you will be advised of the contribution
it is up to the client how much that they can afford to put
Q: Would you be able to take me somewhere other than
a medical appointment?
we are available for any essential journey that you wish to
make, but usually the transport will be to local towns such
as Poole, Blandford, Dorchester or Wareham, and not normally,
for instance, to go to an airport to go on holiday.
Q: Will you be able to take me somewhere on a regular
so long as there is a driver available.
Q: Are there any age restrictions for the scheme?
we want to be able to help anyone who has transport issues.
Q: Will it matter if I don’t use it very often?
we are here when you need us.
Q: Do I have to live in Bere Regis to register for
we already have clients in Tolpuddle, Briantspuddle and Winterborne
